Centre Technology Transfer CITTRU posted this:Carbon composites based on bacterial biomass for manufacturing of electrode materialsThe subject of the offer is a method of manufacturing of carbon-based composites for electrode materials. These composites are built of electrode active phase nanoparticles (e.g. metallic or metal oxides) and a carbon matrix obtained from bacterial biomass. Living organisms serve both as the component capable to capture the nanoparticles, and as a source of biocarbon support providing high dispersion and stabilization of nanoparticles, as well as high electrical conductivity of the material. Application: electrocatalytic active electrode materials, e.g. in ORR reactions; energy storage (supercapacitors).

ACDC Cube also uses a novel control method to do the interface between the Alternate Current (AC) distribution networks and a battery pack, or other Direct Current (DC) sources/loads, delivering higher power quality in a compact design. ACDC Cube has lower total volume and weight, increased durability and equivalent reliability when compared with a standard solution such as the voltage source converter plus dual active bridge. Due to its innovative features, ACDC Cube is especially suitable for applications where the size of the power conversion system is critical.
Korea Institute of Energy Research posted this:Method for Manufacturing CIGS Thin-Film Solar Cells Using Substrates Not Containing SodiumResearchers at the Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER) have developed an innovative method for manufacturing CIGS thin-film solar cells using substrates not containing sodium. This technology specifically relates to a method for manufacture in which Na (sodium) supply sources are formed on parts of the surface of molybdenum electrode prior to the formation of CIGS-based precursor thin film and then heat-treated to form CIGS-based thin film. Thereby improving the electrical characteristics of the CIGS-based thin film serving as a light-absorbing layer of a solar cell, and to CIGS-based thin-film solar cell manufactured using the method.

RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:High Voltage Photovoltaic Cells with High EfficiencyA novel photovoltaic cell is described for converting sunlight to electricity at higher efficiency relative to existing cells, and with improved flexibility for integration in modules, both one-sun and concentrating. The new cell contains many small sub-cells, which are internally connected in series. Such configurations are called Monolithic Integrated Modules (MIM) and they are capable of providing very high open circuit voltage. Our MIM design is based on a monolithic device with vertical PN junctions with significant expected advantages in performance relative to existing MIM designs: higher voltage; smaller contact area and no front metallization grid, leading to higher efficiency; better utilization of the solar spectrum; and better matching to integration in modules including concentrator modules. High-voltage cells can be electrically connected in parallel instead of series, leading to nearly independent operation (voltage-coupled instead of current-coupled) even under non-uniform illumination and even partial shading conditions. This will improve the overall performance of a photovoltaic system, and permit a less demanding and less expensive optical design. Project ID : 6-2011-180
uacoopera posted this:Emulsified suspensions for cold accumulationA group of researchers from a Portuguese University developed a phase change composite material with high thermal conductivity, dispersed in an aqueous matrix with self-organization, processable in situ and with high potential for use in cold storage systems. The new material allows to accumulate a large amount of energy in the form of latent heat, the thermal conductivity is improved and, mainly, it eliminates the stability problems of the devices incorporating the material due to the small volume variations in the phase shift. The university is looking for companies in the field of cold storage systems, to assess the potential integration of this technology in existing commercial equipment and license the technology.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New process for the manufacture of electrodes from superporous nanostructured carbon materialsSpanish University have developed a process for the manufacture of electrodes from superporous nanostructured carbon materials. The process uses electrospraying technique to deposit a suspension of a carbon material over a collector. This method facilitates processing superporous nanostructured carbon materials due to its high efficiency and less complexities compared to conventional techniques. The electrodes obtained can be used in energy storage or analytical sensors in commercial devices.

The aim of the center is to receive these challenges and solve them by creating a functional prototype that will serve the companies to eventually develop a new commercial product or to solve a new technological problem created by the growth and evolution of the society.
Fundació URV posted this:New device and method to detect the temperature remotelyThe technology allows to detect the temperature remotely using the emission of light by nanoparticles of a luminescent material doped with lanthanide ions (Yb+3, Er+3, Tm+3 and HO+3, among others) deposited on the object to find its temperature. Excitation with infrared radiation of these luminescent particles produces light emission in different regions of the visible light collected by a sensor to obtain an intensity ratio.
